Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Select the correct form of the verb to show the proper usage of the verb gustar in the following sentence:                                                   We like chocolate.

    • A.

      Me gusta chocolate.

    • B.

      Me gustan chocolate.

    • C.

      Nos gusta chocolate.

    • D.

      Nos gustan chocolate.

    Correct Answer
    C. Nos gusta chocolate.
    Explanation
    The correct form of the verb gustar in this sentence is "Nos gusta chocolate." This is because the subject "We" is plural, so the verb form should also be plural. "Gusta" is the singular form, while "gustan" is the plural form. Since the sentence is referring to liking chocolate in general, without specifying any specific chocolates, the singular form "gusta" is used.

    Select the correct form of the verb to show the proper usage of the verb gustar in the following sentence:                                                   I like grapes.

    • A.

      Me gusto uvas.

    • B.

      Me gustas uvas.

    • C.

      Me gusta uvas.

    • D.

      Me gustan uvas.

    Correct Answer
    D. Me gustan uvas.
    Explanation
    The correct form of the verb gustar in this sentence is "Me gustan uvas." This is because the verb gustar is used to express liking or preference for something, and it is conjugated based on the thing being liked, which in this case is "uvas" (grapes), a plural noun. Therefore, the correct conjugation of gustar for this sentence is "gustan." The other options are incorrect because they do not match the subject and verb agreement required by gustar.

    Select the correct form of the verb to show the proper usage of the verb gustar in the following sentence:                                                   You like to study.

    • A.

      Me gusta estudiar.

    • B.

      Me gustan estudiar.

    • C.

      Te gusta estudiar.

    • D.

      Te gustan estudiar.

    Correct Answer
    C. Te gusta estudiar.
    Explanation
    Te gusta estudiar is the correct form of the verb gustar in the given sentence. In Spanish, gustar is used to express likes or preferences, and it is conjugated based on the thing or activity that is liked. When the thing or activity liked is singular, like studying in this case, gusta is used. Te is the correct pronoun to use in this sentence to indicate that the liking is directed towards "you".

    Select the correct form of the verb to show the proper usage of the verb gustar in the following sentence:                                                   He likes strawberries.

    • A.

      A Ud. le gustan fresas.

    • B.

      A él le gustan fresas.

    • C.

      A ella le gustan fresas.

    • D.

      A ellos les gustan fresas.

    Correct Answer
    B. A él le gustan fresas.
    Explanation
    The correct form of the verb gustar in the sentence "He likes strawberries" is "A él le gustan fresas." This is because gustar is a reflexive verb in Spanish and requires an indirect object pronoun to indicate who is being pleased by the subject of the sentence. In this case, "él" (he) is the subject, so the correct pronoun to use is "le." Additionally, since strawberries is a plural noun, the verb gustar should be conjugated in the plural form, "gustan."

    Write a four (4) sentence paragraph in Spanish expressing the varying degrees of your personal  likes and dislikes. Be sure to include what you like to do, what you like to do more,  and what you like to do also, as well as what you don't like to do, what you don't like to do at all, and what you don't like to neither/nor do.  It is a good idea to combine these writing prompts in your sentences in order to not exceed the four-sentence requirement. ** Reminder:  This exercise is very similar to the writing practice on likes and dislikes you completed in your journal for this chapter.
